to ignore the latino vote, and now that jeff flake is in office it will be interesting to watch his -- whether he comes back home to his original pakistan being an advocate for immigration reform. when he made the run for the u.s. senate seat, given the politics of arizona, he shifted back and became a border hawk, much like john mccain in 2008, build that dang fence first now. he is safely elected he might be one of the key runs that brings up and pushes for comprehensive immigration reform in the u.s. senate, and one interesting survey note that came from the latino decisions poll on election eve, was a question that asked latino voters in arizona about their willingness to vote for republicans if they took a leadership rope on comprehensive immigration reform, and 39% of latino voters said if the republican part ensured passage of immigration reform that would make them more likely to vote for the republican party, and that tells republicans in arizona that, rather than pursuing a strategy that perhaps arpaio and russell pearce chose to do in the pass anyway want to rethink their
trillion in debt. jeff, so what does it take to get someone like alicia hired? >> i think that the economic underpinnings underpinnings require some security and some long-term stability. it is not enough for congress to come along and say, okay, we have decided on this deal for 2013. i think the political class is loving this attention. we're all sitting here on pins and needles and bated breath waiting for they on high to decide our futures. it would be really nice if we could get back to the point where we say here is the rates, here is the appreciation, here is the withholding, and let the rest of us go do what we're supposed to do, which is help alicea get a job. >> students protest for healthy school lunches. they actually get what they asked explains how next.

to say that we're really going to miss senator jeff bingaman, our chairman on that energy committee. he has done a remarkable job at putting clean energy front and center of our agenda. and then this tax credit was most recently extended in 2009 as part of president obama's recovery act. so renewable energy has enjoyed long-standing bipartisan support, and the wind tax credit has been a great success. the cost of wind power has fallen dramatically as the presiding officer knows, it has fallen dramatically over the years. for example, general -- g.e.'s wind power costs have dropped from 15 cents per kill a watt-hour to near five cents in the last ten years. wind is becoming cost competitive with fossil fuels. on some days, it's the cheapest electricity available. let me just repeat that because that's important, because we hear arguments out there that, oh, this is expensive, but on some days, it is the cheapest electricity available. the department of energy estimates we could receive 20% of our electric power from wind alone by 2030, but we need to stay the course and support a policy
. royce: i thank the gentlelady for yielding. i'd just like to begin by thanking jeff duncan and his staff as well for their good work on this legislation. but i would remind the members in terms of iranian activity in this hemisphere, we think what first comes to mind is the attack in the 1990's in argentina, but more recently hezbollah has penetrated our borders and one example i would give to you is a man trained by iranian intelligence. he paid a bribe in order to get to mexico from beirut. once in mexico he paid a second bribe, this time to a cartel group in order to have himself inserted in a special compartment in the back of a car. the reason is he important is because it was his brother who was in charge for security in israel and during the hezbollah war, and i was there at the time, i saw those missiles that were ordered launched by hezbollah into a town that was under attack. there were some 600 casualties in that hospital trarp a direct result of those iranian and syrian missiles that were being fired on the hospital. frankly it was one of the targets. but fired on that town,
page, jess says -- jeff says -- nicholas, what kind of gun do you have? caller: i have two fire armas, an ak-47, and an ar-15 bought as recently as yesterday. host: why did you buy one yesterday? caller: i have wanted one for some time but just didn't. in anticipation of a ban, i made the decision to go out and purchase one. that being said, i want to say i am in favor of huge increases in gun-control law. i think one of the things that is most disturbing to me is to hear fear mongering on both sides of the conversation whether it is coming from anti- gun or pro-gun individuals. what i hear from the pro-gun individuals is that the way to combat crime is to throw more guns at it. i could not possibly disagree more. i think there are some people who should not have guns, definitely should not have guns, this individual involved in the sandy hook tragedy. there are people who should not have the right to. i am in favor of have the background checks. whether the money comes from the gun buyer and the cost goes up in order to get proper background checks done or you just don't buy a gun. i
